It’s all about the experience and the one thing I thrive my business on is your experience. I want you leaving my studio feeling completely different about yourself, of course in a good way. You could already be so confident in yourself but to see yourself raw and being vulnerable in front of a camera makes all of the difference. Most of my clients leave the studio in tears never knowing they could be so beautiful. My goal is to make every women feel like a diamond, indestructible, no one can bring you down or make you feel bad about yourself. Take this journey with me and you’ll experience everything below.
When an inquiry first comes in from you, I automatically set up a time to meet you in person; this can be for coffee, lunch, or even a drink or for a quick zoom chat. I like to get to know each other before you book your session to make sure you are comfortable. This session is all about you; it has nothing to do with me. I want to grow a relationship with you and know why you decided to take this step towards self love.
On the day of your session you will go straight into hair and makeup done professionally by Amanda Bravender or Brittany Spreen. This will help create the look you are envisioning. This will also boost your confidence and get you ready to be in front of the camera, just wait until you see yourself in the mirror. If you don't normally wear makeup don't worry we won't over do it so you don't look like yourself. Your makeup is to only enhance your beauty and so the camera can capture it.
We will then begin the best part, creating your stunning photos. You will be allowed at least 3 outfit changes. Shooting time usually takes between one and two hours; depending how quickly you get comfortable, I will never stop your session short because of time.
Your photos are all done!! About one to two weeks after your session, your photos will be ready to be viewed. A Reveal and Ordering Appointment will have already been set up when your session was booked. This is when you will come back to the studio to look over your photos. This is also the time that we will discuss which products are best for you. Our products vary from luxury albums, glass heirloom boxes, metal wall portraits, and so much more.
HOW DO I BOOK WITH YOU?
To book a session with me, all you have to do shoot me an email or complete the contact form below to set up your zoom chat. We'll go over all the details and questions you have regarding your session, including detailed pricing. Every session is made specifically for YOU, so once you feel comfortable and ready to book your experience an invoice will be sent via email. Once you have paid your invoice you will officially be booked for your session date. You'll receive an email with your Welcome Guide, Questionnaire, and Contract. Time to start planning all the details!
DO YOU TRAVEL?
YES, I do travel. You'll just need to cover all travel costs, rental cars and airbnb accommodations if you'd like me to come to your city! If you grab some of your girlfriends you all can split the cost! I recommend 4-6 girls to make it a weekend of fun! If you'd like to come to me, you can visit me at my home studio in Covington, LA. I visit Southern California frequently and share dates in The Empowering Babe Cave.
WHAT ARE LUXURY LOCATION SESSIONS?
A few times a year I plan special Luxury Location Sessions that take places across the country at exquisite locations and wedding venues. These sessions are specially priced and completely styled by me (don't worry you get a say). You get two wardrobe changes, one being a more high end fashion look and the other a typical lingerie boudoir look. Keep an eye out for the newest Luxury Location Sessions in The Empowering Babe Cave.
HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD I HAVE MY SESSION?
I always recommend booking your session as soon as possible, if you end up signing up for a payment plan products are not delivered until the payment plan is fully paid and products can take 4 to 6 weeks to be delivered.
IS THE SESSION EXPERIENCE FEE APPLIED TO MY ORDER?
No, the session experience fee is separate from your luxury product order. Your session experience fee covers all your shooting time with me, professional hair and makeup, access to my client closet, professional retouching of your photos, and your reveal and ordering appointment. All luxury products are sold separately at your reveal and begin at $1200.
IF I DO MY OWN HAIR & MAKEUP IS THERE A DISCOUNT?
Hair and makeup is a complimentary service, so the session experience fee remains the same. Amanda and Brittany are amazing and won't disappoint. We always make sure you are 100% satisfied with your look before we start your session, I don't want you to hate your photos because you are unhappy with your hair and makeup. I only allow Amanda and Brittany to do your hair and makeup. It must be done so the camera picks it up and they specialize in that, this is not everyday makeup.
WHAT IS THE REVEAL AND ORDERING APPOINTMENT?
Your reveal and ordering appointment, takes place 1-2 weeks after your session, this is booked the day of your session. You'll come in to view your images for the first time and choose the products that are right for you. We'll play a slideshow that shows all of your retouched images. We will then go through them one-by-one to pick your favorites. There are ways to get them all but many do narrow them down into an album or custom collection.
WHAT IS THE TURN AROUND TIME TO GET MY PRODUCTS?
Once your products are paid in full it takes about 4 weeks to have your products ready for pick up or delivery. Please keep that timeline in mind when planning for any special occasions.
DO YOU SELL DIGITAL FILES?
Digitals are available for purchase. Our top two Product Collections come with corresponding digitals to download or a full digital collection on a USB. You can purchase just all of your digitals with a custom built collection as well. It's a great way to get ALL your images without having to narrow them down.
CAN I BRING A FRIEND TO MY SESSION?
You sure can! Feel free to bring a friend with you if you'd like during the hair and makeup process. No one else is allowed in the studio when shooting begins. This is to make sure you remain comfortable and not worrying about what anyone is thinking while you pose. Most people think having a friend in the room while shooting will comfort them but most of the time it actually adds to their anxiety.
WHAT IF I START MY PERIOD BEFORE MY SESSION?
There is no rescheduling for periods. As long as you are comfortable wearing a tampon we are good to go. If you have other concerns regarding your cycle, just let me know and we can certainly work around it!
I DON'T KNOW HOW TO POSE, WILL YOU HELP ME?
Absolutely! I photograph everyday women like yourself, not models! This is my job, to help you every step of the way. As long as you can follow simple directions, you can do this. I will pose you from your head to your toes and even help relax your fingertips and teach you how to relax and create a sensual facial expression.
DO I HAVE TO GET NAKED?
Of course not! When you book your session I send out a questionnaire to get to know you a little better and we cover this very question! I ask you your comfort level and that helps me with posing ideas and outfit choices. The sheets set is a great way to do implied nude without showing everything off. If you feel comfortable enough in the end and want to do some nudes, we can certainly do that, but it's not required. I want you to feel comfortable and beautiful in your own way!
WHAT DO I WEAR?
Once you book your session I will send out a Welcome Guide to help you get ready for your experience. It's filled with all the "dos and don'ts" for your session including a Lingerie 101 Guide and a Beauty Guide. This is a simple but useful guide to help you shop for your body type. If you have no clue what to do or where to start, you can simply bring your own undies and have full reign of my client closet. It's filled with over 300 pieces from sizes XS-4X. I'll send you my Client Closet Catalog that has all my pieces in a PDF for you to choose from, I will have the items pulled for you the day of your session to try on a choose from. I've never had anyone not find something because I'm a lingerie shopping addict and there WILL be something for you!
WHAT IS YOUR RESCHEDULING/CANCELLATION POLICY?
You are allowed ONE complimentary rescheduling date. I understand things come up/happen where you need to move your original date. This must be done a week prior to your session. If you need to reschedule for a second time you'll just need to pay another full booking fee to choose a new date on the calendar. You can refer to your contact regarding this matter once you are booked.
DO I HAVE TO SHARE MY IMAGES ONLINE?
NO WAY. I never make you do something you're not comfortable with! There are plenty of ladies who have had a session with me and you'll never see one photo. This is a choice that you all make after your session is complete during your Reveal and Ordering Appointment. You can go through and choose photos one by one on which you'd like shared and where you would like them shared.
